Following on from my ‘Best of 2010’ posts made over the Christmas period, below I recap the results so far and share some of the ‘other’ votes that have you have gone for…
My first post looked at the best match of 2010 and what a choice you had with ten nominations from me as well as those that did not quite make my shortlist.
Perhaps unsurprisingly though it is the UK Championship final between John Higgins and Mark Williams that currently tops the vote with 34.74%, no doubt in some way due to the fact that it will still be fresh in everyone’s minds but also down to the fact that it was a classic match. Second on the list is the victory of Steve Davis against Higgins at the Crucible while Mark Selby’s Masters victory against Ronnie O’Sullivan sits third.
The ‘other’ votes were for both for matches involving Mark Williams strangely enough, one for his 9-8 win against Shaun Murphy in Telford and one for his 3-2 defeat at the hands of Neil Robertson during the World Open.
The result of my second poll was however far more conclusive as Neil Robertson took top spot with 45.39% of the vote with nearest challengers John Higgins and Mark Williams on 22.7% and 21.99% respectively.
The other nominations in this section were more varied with Martin Gould and Ronnie O’Sullivan both attracting multiple votes while Mark Allen, Steve Davis, Ali Carter, Ricky Walden and amusingly Jürgen Kesseler all gained one.
Finally the vote for most improved player is proving to be even more of a landslide as Martin Gould currently tops the vote with a massive 52.17%, more than the other nine options put together.
Aside from those suggestions made by myself, Judd Trump has convinced a number of you that he is the year’s most improved player while Ali Carter, Mark Allen and Michael White were also amongst those to gained your support.
